Opera North: Madama Butterfly

Tue 13 and Thu 15 Mar 2018 Book Tickets Tickets From £15 - £60

Madama Butterfly | Puccini

One of the best-loved operas of all time, this is the tragic tale of innocent love crushed by betrayal. Cio-Cio San is a young Japanese woman who sacrifices everything to marry Pinkerton, the dashing American naval officer. Cruelly discarded when he returns to America, Butterfly is driven to a final and dramatic act of despair.

With its exquisite set and costumes, this emotionally direct and beautiful production by Tim Albery is devastating in its impact. Madama Butterfly features some of Puccini’s most famous music including ‘One Fine Day’ and the ‘Humming Chorus’. French soprano Anne Sophie Duprels has won widespread praise in this production in the role of Cio-Cio San.

‘As for Anne Sophie Duprels, returning to the title role, it would be hard to find, or even imagine, a more thoroughly committed rendering of it.’
